CHULA VISTA, CA - Khamis Berneker and Brittany Zavala represented Cypress College beach volleyball at the 2019 CCCAA State Pairs Championship on Friday at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center.
The Chargers' top pair this season entered pool play as the No. 2 seed in the south, having finished second in the SoCal Regional.
